In tb.e!far cLf.Golden Age .which his
tcrians allude to and poets describe in
the beautiful valley cf a small rurer which
empties into theCaspian Sea, yhere' ro
ses bloomed in a perpetual spring-time,
where all sweet flowers lled the air
with fragrance, and all me'odiccs birds
with scng was gathered cr,e cf those
happy groups cf families, into which
mankind were divided in the first ages
after the Deluge; before there were
cities, kingdoms, wars and the splendors,
and vices, and cruelties cf a more advan
The Vale of Roses plowed like a new
paradise. The mountains, whose glitter
ing peaks are like a jeweled crown, sur
rounded the valley, and sheilded it from
the cold blast of the. Siberian wilds. Sil
ver cascades dashed down the precipices,
through ' evergreen trees, flowering
shrubs, and long, pendent vines. The
emerald grown sward that sloped down
to the river was bespangled with a thous
and, gay and odorous flowers; red straw
berries gleamed through the grass ; the
clumps of shrubbery were filled with de
licious berries and grape-vines loaded
the trees with purple clusters. The choi
cest fruit3 grew spontaneously, and the
upland terraces were covered with wheat
and barley, sown by the lavish hand cf
nature, for the food of man.
In this delightful scene were scattered
groups of rustic cottages small, simple,
rude in structure, but so emoowered with
foliage, and surrounded with spreading
trees, and so in harmony with the land
scape, that each cluster was a new pic
ture cf delight. " Herds of cattle were
lowing in the meadows, horses neighed
in their rich pastures, and flocks of sheep
and goats gave beauty and animation to
the landscape. These were attended by
shepherds and shepherdesses dressed in
simple but graceful robe3, and crowded
with flowers. With the lowing and blea
ting of the herds, the softened roar cf
the distant-cascades; the murmur of the
summer breeze, the hum of bees, were
mingled the melodes of rude shepherds,
pipes, and choruses cf happy childern at
play. The old people their venerable
heads covered with silssr locks sat auder
the spreading trees, talking together of
the days of their -youth, cr relating the
traditions of their ancestors and the
events of their own early days, to the
young people; who gathered around
them full of affection and reverence.
In this happy valley of this almost for
gotten past the wisest governed by his
consols, and the most beautiful was queen
Where all were lovely as perfect health,
freedom from care, and innocence could
make them. Tamar was the most beau
tiful, as her grandfather, Qlem, was. es
teemed most sage. The mother of Ta
mar, who in her youth, had held the
place now filled by her daughter, was. es
teemed for her virtue and wisdom, as
much as she had ever been admired for
her lovljness. The beautiful Tamar wa3
beloved by all trie old ahtf' yo'upg. As
she wandered along the romantic bank of
the river, in the dewy morning, the blue
firmament, with its embroiders. of silver
clouds, seemed but her canopy ; tho trees
and shrubs noded -their homage, the
flowers sent up their incense of perfume ;
the birds warbled-their melodies for her
delights'; the flpck3 stepped grazing to
look at her; the horses neighed at her
drew near them : sweet eyed
gazelles approached her without fear.
in this harmony of Nature she walked
its queen robe d in lustrous white, and
crowned "with choicest flowers. :
Among all the youths who admired
fair Tamar, two of the worthiest aspired
to the favor of her love. Arnette was
one of the gra.vest and nobelest of the
youths of the valley. lo footr was swif
ter in the race; no arm stronger in the
flood. He could climb the precipice
with the mountain goat ; his arrow
pierced the heart of the spoiled leopard,
cr the fiercest wolf, that came to prey
on the flocks cf the valley. .
His cousin Jaleph was scarcely inferi
or in manly sport.' They had grown up
together, and loved each other like broth
ers. Arnette was dark Jaleph fair.
Arnette'a black, cbstering locks were
like the raven's wing; Jaleph's shone
like the golden sunshine on the sea. 'Ar
heite's dark' eyes dashed out their fires
under his deep brows ; Jaleph's reflected
the hues cf the cerulean heavens.
Both were brave and strong, and hero
ic. If Arnetta had more -strength and
dignity, Jaleph had more skill and gra
ces. Une was siatlier in nis walk : tie
otber.rnore aerial in the dance.
Both loved Tamar. In "a thousand
ways, each told his love. Arnette pre
sented her witha gorgous piurne of the
bird cf paradise. Jaieph wove for her a
garlacd cf matchless beauty, made
shells and flowers. Arnette trained
her a horse fleet as an antelope ; Jaleph
learned to play the melodies which filled
her innocent slumber with enchanti?
dreams. . , ,
po beloved, Tamsr wa3 very happy.
No cne could tell which swain she favor
ed. . Had each cne been her brother,
she cculd not have been mere kind.
The aged people, who loved ail their
childern, locked cn and shock their heads,
for they saw that this must end and they
feard that it might end in sorrow.
The time came when Taznar also saw
and felt, tnat the nolle cousin loved her
with mere than a broiherly love. Arnet
te, the more impetuous, first declared his
passion. . ..
"Ternar," L.3 said "beautiful Tarnar, I
love thee." , ' . '
"Dear Arnette t" breathed fro.n the
cpen henrt cf the innocent maiden. '
"Wilt" thou be mice ?"
Her lovely face, which had been radi
ent with happiness, was clouded now
with doubt and perplexity." Arnette saw
and asked again, in 'eep end subdued
tones i ."
"O beautiful one ! wilt thou be mine?"
The queenly girl covered her face with
h:r hands, and burst into tears.
Jaleph that moment came upon them,
holding in his hand an clTering cf flowers.
He stopped a moment in surprise at the
dark brow cf Arnette, and the tearful
distress of his beloved Tamar. If e grew
pale, as his heart had told hhn the deci
sive hour had come.
With the frankness that belonged to
the age cf heroic icnocense, before cen
turies cf selfishness, rapacity, poverty
and crime had marred the bodies acd
deformed the souls of man, he held out
one hand to his rival, and the c:her to
the beautiful one they both adored.
"I, too, love you, beautiful Tamar."
said the youth with the blue eyes and
golden hair. "God of our fathers, wit
ness my deep love. Here we stand.
Choose between us!"
A pang shot through the heart of each,
but they stood, each nobly resigned to the
fate that 'awaited him.
Tamar looked on each. So long had
she loved both, with, the pure love "cf
saintly maidenhood, that the deeper love
now proffered only perplexed and distres
sed her. How could she m take herself
from either ? How hurt one, when both
were so dear ?" ' ' -'
' "Arnette ! Jaleph I why asfr ci? to
choose? Jie we not happy f bo let us
The young men looked ia each other's
saddened eyes, and each on3 felt that it
could be S'j no longer. The happy time
had passed. ! -
As the group stood, hand-ia-hand, in
the glow of the sunset, the mother of Ta
mar came, in her sweet matronly dignity,
to greet them.
"What is this, my chiliem?" she asked,
in nlarm as she saw their sorrowful faces
and her daughter's falling tears.
"Dear mother 1" cried Tamar, "how
can I choose between those I love
The mother smiled ; but the .smile was
not from sadness.
"My daughter," she replied, ""there
must be one whom we love above all oth
ers." ' '
"Mo-.her, mother !" said the poor girl,
as she buried her face in her bosom ;
"both have been so kind' so-noble, so
loving to me all my life, hpw can I. hurt
one or the other ?" '
Again the sad smile.
"Come with me. my daughter; you,
my childern, go. In seven days Tamar
shall answer you."
They kissed the mother's band held
out to them. They looked tenderly at
the weeping girl, and walked away, hand
in hand. " There was no'rancor or jeal
ousy in their noble hearts. It i3 true,
that.each one felt that the happiness cf
his fife was at Stake. To fight for the
possession of the object of their love, how
ever, was a moid of settling their rival
pretension: left to the darkness and "fe
rocity of succeeding ages, when the earth
should be stained with crime and blood.
Arnette and Jaleph were together, as
ever, in their light labors and their man
ly pastimes. Two days had passed, and
they were swimming in the river.
Whether exhausted ly exercise, or weak
ened by emotion, Jaleph could not 'swim
with his usual strength. Soon his golden
locks were seen to sink beneath the
waves. His sinewy arms grew power
less. A c'rv from the shore alarmed Ar
nette. He looked for his cousin, and the
next moment plunged beneath the sur
face. In a few moments, he bcre him to
the shore, where he soon recovered.
Again, they were hunting the leopard
in the mountains. Jaleph, fell, and the
wild beast sprang upon him. The lance
of Arnette pierced' the fierce animal's
heart, and saved his rival from death.
The seventh day approached. Neither
had spoken to Tamar. They had but
seen her at a distance. Each had re
frained from every offering or sign cf
love. Their loyal hearts would not per
mit them to take advantage cf each' ether.
n the eve cf the' .seventh day, they
met in the "assembly, that gathered to
prepare the morrow festival.
Tamar had decided. Her heart, ques
ticned in solitude, declared for the golden
haired musician. But her love and pity
for Arnette, her appreciation cf his noble
qualities, and her thankfulness to him for
twice saving the life cf the chosen one,
made her lock at him with such a glow of
admiration and gratitude, that Jaleph's
heart sunk within him.' 'He weal forth
It seemed plain to him, that the ques
tion cf his life was decided. He would
not wait for the morrow. Revealing frs
plan to one faithful friend, he went forth
in the darkless, and bade ad:2ti to the
happy valley. '
When the morning came, Arnette re
paired to the lovely 'csttaga of Ti-mar.
She was pale, but more tian ev;r keauti-
ful. As she saw Arnette, she looked
around anxiously for her cousin. Sho
grew pale'as he cetrne not, and was no
where to be seen. It was the' appointed
hour. Arnetta, too, boked around with
"Arnette," said tho - mother, "my
daughter ha3 decided. She' will give htr
hzLi to his, her heart has ch;ses. Bit
whire is Jaleph ?'.'
"I knew cot.".'
"Vcu know not ? lie should be here.
What has become cf him 1 Where is he?"
"Alas ! I know not," said th-3 hsrcio
youth, greived to the heart with tho sos
ficicu which these quick question con
veyed. 'Mother !" cried the pab and trem
bling girl, be not unjust to Arnette.
Tvi:s has he saved the life cf Jaleph,
sinco hit we m2t."
The confidant of Jaleph came, and
whispered Tamar that her lover had
gone, The roses thathr.d heft hsr cheek
now fled frcm her lips ; shs sank fainting
cn the flowery sod.
"What is ail this ?" cried Arnette.
He was told that jaleph had fld, and
why. And he knew all too well, that he
who fled from his fate desparingly, was
the chosen love of the beautiful Tamar,
now laying, pale as the pure whits lilies
around her, in her mother's arms.
Arnette knelt down by her side, press
ed his lips upon her lovely forehead, and
said to his mother; "I will bring him to
her, cr never see her more."
Li a week from that day, the brave Ar
nette led his consia to tho cottage of
Tamar ; and placing their hands togeth
er, said : "I
"" "Take him Tamar; hs is thins He
fled that J might be happy ; I have found
him, that thou tnayest be happy with him
thou lovest. Let me be the brother cf
The arm3 of both were twined around
him. Who shall say thai he wa3 less
happy in his generous self-sacrifice thaa
they in their mutual love ?"
The Golden Age lives ia dim tradi
tions and poetic dreams. It lives also in
every he-art that i3 generous and noble.
He who can love without selfishness, is a
hero of the Golden Ae.
About the year 1S32 and '33 there
lived a family of some note oa the Gaud
aloupe river in Westera Texas. Among
them were several ladies of the upper
tendon of those days sensible locking
creatures, happy as larks and always full
cf fun and mischief, It happened that
amonjr fifteen or twenty young men re
siding m that section, there was cne by
thu came cfM!lert a surly faced, griz
zly haired, thuffy, and moon-eyed chap.
wLo became wofully smitten with the most
charming of the aforesaid young ladies
who, of all the buckskins'ia the wilds of
Texas, was most unlikely to be success
ful in matters whera the gentle sxwere
to be consulted',' won nhd wed.
His visits .became less like these of
angels first once a month, then doubling
to twice a month, and once a week "acd
soon." said the old man, "this amber
spitting, deer killing fellow was almost
every day forcing his company ca poor
Many jokes at his expenss followed,
of course, and she resolved, after suffer
ing under them for some time to get clear
cf her admirer or quit the ranch herself.
An opportunity offered on the following
Sabbath. It being watermelonseason,
and Bettey's father having a fine supply,
all the youngsters for miles around as
sembeled there on the holhdav to feast
oa raelono. M. was prominent in the
circle until afternoon. Betiy had a pri
vate interview wnh the young man and
arranged that M. should " be decoyed
frcm the house and frightened by the
cry of "Indians," frcm some cf hi.i com
rades, which would wcund his pride and
drive him away. A swim in the river,
some three hundred yards distance, was
proposed by one and seconded by several.
Of course poor M" wa in,
They went to the fcrd near the melon
patch and began undressing. Ia the
meantime eight or ten others, with guns,
had gone down under cover cf the bank
and secreted themselves along the path
frcm tn'e bathing 'place to t the house.
The company with Miller were in fine
glee, and in going down spoke cf the
recent barbarities of the Indians, their
increased boldness &c., thus exciting the
anricorahaiive bump's cf Miller to the
"Now boys," said cne, "Who'll jump
into the river first 1"
"I'll bet I'm first in," said Miller, "by
